France Shelf Figural Mystery Swinging Arm

Catalog Description:

C.1890, French, Large Male Figure Swing clock. The statue is patinated spelter in excellent original condition. Note industrial themes, with hammer, anvil, gears and 3 iron working tools. The minus on this clock is that the swinging arm has been dropped at some time and the top ball damaged and straightened. Creases are evident in the rear hemisphere, and it still has a skew to the right, therefore the beat adjustment has had to be set at one side to get the clock to run. Some one with skill in working with brass could improve the alignment of the ball. Would have brought $6000 without the damage. Height 37"
